My baby is going to the potty! All of a sudden, something clicked! We put the potty in the living room and after a couple accidents, she got it!! Elizabeth was so excited to wear the princess panties that Brenda got her - and I think they really helped because she didn't want to get the princesses wet. This morning, she went to Bible study with no diaper (and a skirt, since we haven't worked with pulling pants down yet). She stayed dry and came home and used the potty right away!
|Some people read books, others color on the potty!|
|Why she is posed like a majorette, I have no idea. But here is ERS in her princess panties. And this is Rachel's "mom, why aren't you picking me up" face. Lovely, huh?|
|When I pulled the camera out, Rachel was standing up, clawing at her sister. Mama is too slow and she is on the move again.|
We are so proud of our big girl and I think she is really proud too. The first time she had success, she ran in and gave Rachel a huge hug, yelling, "Rachel, Rachel! I pee-peed in the potty!!" I wish I could have gotten that on video. She was so happy to show her daddy too and we were both stunned last night when she poo-pooed on her own and came in to tell us.
|Mom and Elizabeth, the day we brought her home from the hospital.|
I have to admit, I was a little sad after she went to bed, realizing how much and how fast she's growing up. I'm so glad that God makes this a gradual process. My heart couldn't take it moving any faster. She is talking more and more each day and even today, she told me that she needed to take a nap in the middle of our book and went and laid down in her bed. I'm so thankful for this gift of being a mother, even during the "they drive me crazy" times. Thank you for riding this potty training roller coaster with us. I'll still keep you updated...and then, there will always be Rachel!
